Dr. Ordonez is a Professor of Industrial Engineering at the Universidad de Chile, where he teaches deterministic operations research courses. He received his Ph.D. in Operations Research from MIT and his Mathematical Engineering degree from Universidad de Chile. His research focuses on convex and robust optimization, complexity of algorithms, sensitivity analysis, and applications of optimization to engineering and management science. An area of interest is the development of robust solutions for the rapid deployment and distribution of supplies in situations with high uncertainty and costs. Another active area of research is the deployment of security resources in the presence of strategic adversaries. His work has been published in top operations research journals, such as Operations Research, Transportation Science, Mathematics of Operations Research, and IIE Transactions, to name a few. His research has been supported with grants from the National Science Foundation, PATH, Caltrans, Department of Homeland Security in the United States and Conicyt and Institute Milenium in Chile. His work has been awarded the Wagner prize for Excellence in Operations Research practice and the Rist Prize of the Military Operations Research Society.
